Alabama star LB will miss National Championship


Alabama will be without one of its best defensive players when it faces Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship Monday night.

Outside linebacker Anfernee Jennings posted a note on his Twitter account Wednesday morning that he will miss the game as he recovers from knee surgery.

“Unfortunately I’ve played my last game this season but I will be back stronger than ever next season,” he wrote in the post.

Jennings, who suffered the injury during the Tide’s 24-6 victory over Clemson in the Sugar Bowl, finished the game with three tackles.
